that there is no such thing. i mean, you know, we are unique but we're not that unique. there are other large city departments around, not just the country but the world, that deal with multiple floors, multiple functions, multiple departments. >> example, in oakland, they only submit the job. san jose also submit a job. los angeles also submit a job. it's a little bit different in our case. therefore we are still looking, doesn't mean we give up the idea. >> great. >> deputy director sweeney, you were just going to say --. >> i think if we ever came across a system or heard of a system that's worked, bring it to us and talk to us about it. >> we had los angeles building and safety up two months ago and i showed them the fifth floor, they were very surprised about the ease with which you can come in. they say you make an appointment and you come in at 11:00, 10 after 11:00 and you meet the building inspector or the engineer, then you can go over the counter, but you have to have an appointment. second thing they were surprised about is some of the size of the jobs that we'll plan check over t
up is a healthy one not just for the school district, but for the city at-large and for a point of reference, much of the monies that were spent last year were spent reconverting the horseman campus to continue to develop the former bryant campus for international high school. to redo the isa campus and to finish building the brand-new tech 21 career building at the john o'connell campus. so there is a lot of really exciting projects that this work has funded and next year we have a number of similar projects targeted including trying to replace the final remaining modular what's buildings that we are renting with permanent classroom buildings. so with that, i would ask if there have any questions that you might have and hopefully you will approve the report. thank you. >> thank you; there are no public speakers for this item. any comments from the board or superintendents? >> no, but i read it. >> it's right here. >> i move the recommendations. >> we already did. roll call, please. >> have i one question? >> commissioner? >> thank you president yee. this report is an
waste away from the hub of civilization, which enabled cities to grow. . >> you have a large bowl, a drive motor and another motor with a planetary gearbox with differential pressure inside there. the large mass up there spinning separating the solids from the liquid. we have to prevent about once a month, we go in there grease those, change the oil, check the vibration levels. the operators can tell just by the hum of that machine that it's a harmonic noise emitted that it's out of balance and the machine needs to be cleaned. it will start vibrating and we have vibration analysis machines that will come over here and check the levels. so it's kind of an on-going thing that you have to stay on top of on a daily basis. >> handled properly, you take organic residuals, as we call them, that are leftovers of our society and turn them back into some energy. and we have another ability to take that sludge and get a nutrient value for crops there. we actually are running a kind of composting energy recovery system. >> well, this is a dirty job. we try to do it safely and we try to do it

still has a huge presence in baghdad. the u.s. embassy there is as large as vatican city with almost 200 american troops providing embassy security and handling sales of u.s. arms to the iraqis. it may be a preview of the future of afghanistan in which the united states is pushing ahead with plans to withdraw troops by 2014. the defense secretary leon panetta says our longest war is at a strategic turning point with a new strategy which has reversed five-year trends of growing violence. he says military commanders there are now expressing optimism. >> all of them believe that we have fundamentally turned the tide in that effort after years in which we lacked the right strategy and the necessary resources to try to achieve the mission we were embarked on. >> shepard: the u.s. still has about 65,000 troops in afghanistan. >>> secretary panetta is talking about the attack object the u.s. outpost in benghazi just hours after more classified hearings on capitol hill. that attack killed the u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens and three other americans. now the state department is sending l
lake city are seeing it, and does have impact and the impact is largely i would say it creates a sense of agreement. the biggest thing that bully does or the big service the film has is gives everyone a unified collective science of agreement to which they roll up the sleeves and get busy creating change and has been really exciting. i building we already i believe kroshed the threshold of 140,000 students nationwide and we are working to get to the million and the idea is a million is a tipping point . a million kids in america. that's like one in ten basically in public schools. that gets embedded so over time every september schools are starting with that method to have that agreement, and along the way we're also trying to deliver youth action and educate ideas and teach the schools and districts about social emotional learning because after they see the film they want to know what do we do next? how do we impact that? and that's what i am up to and it's great to be here. >> thanks so much for coming here. we appreciate it. [applause] >> good afternoon everyone. i am rach

put up to protect city residents, visitors and the park land during the construction. this is a very large event with very large heavy machinery operating throughout various times of the event. and fencing is frankly required, as it would be at any construction site, during the build and the tear down. in recent years we've actually encouraged another planet to be more deliberate during the construction of the events, whereas three years ago we began the construction on the friday before the event. our gardeners over the last few years have advocated for us to begin that construction a couple days earlier so that it can go at a slower pace and we can be ensured the park is protected better. we do work to minimize the impact of the fencing. it is phased, the construction, so it begins in the polo fields and expands out into the surrounding meadows as the construction begins in those meadows. we do work after the event to then phase the breakdown so that the breakdown happens in that surrounding meadows, first in those meadows reopen to the public first, and it is completed lastly at t
be remiss if we didn't mention that this thursday december 13th, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at city hall, we will be celebrating with all of our schools and school communities, teachers, parents, principals, the fact that sfusd is one of only two large urban school systems in the state of california to have surpassed the 800 api mark. [ applause ] so we're tremendously proud of our students and teachers and communities and principals. so we're going to get together and celebrate. and we're going to celebrate that, but we're also going to recognize schools that are on the move, schools that are closing the achievement gap for african-american and latino students and those with growth. so there will be lots of celebrating going on and we're going to recommitment to closing the achievement gap. because, as much as we're going to celebrate, we're also going to be very clear about the fact that we have a long way to go, but that we have the right people on the bus and the bus is heading in the right direction and we're going to add some gas to the bus on thursday. so we want to invite everybody
aassumption. we don't know if the way the building is laid out it's a large building. so we're not sure if they secured the build sog i'm sure there are staircases they can we'll soon find out. >> david, we heard city college president tell us this is precaution nairy. there are reports of a gunman but no one spoke to that person. no one heard shots fired. so they're taking all precaution autos they are. this is a case where word can spread like wildfire. we know in this age of social media word can spread quickly. information can be inaccurate. and that is maybe the case in this situation. people started hearing this, that shots may have been fired we've been told by the president that no, no shots have been fired. you have to take this one step at a time. >> and this is a back drop given what happened in connecticut. this heightens concern and fear and response on this campus. do you have a sense how many police officers have descended on this campus?cl%p >> yes. it's both city college, police and san jose police. the metro unit patrolling and doingz=+ç a call for events are all on t
for a number of reasons. it's in the city's best interest to not put this contract out to bid for the moment. first and foremost, this is a large operation that occurs in a very sensitive park setting and neighborhood setting. we have learned a number of lessons over the last four or five years of how to operate an event of this scale. and that's in a park setting without interacting or unduly interfering like for neighborhood residents. we feel strongly that another planet has also with the department [speaker not understood] and were we to put this out to bid and have a new promoter come in and operate the festival, that there would be a significant learning curve that we frankly experience ourselves in mitigating those impacts. secondly, and i think also in importance, these festivals take time to build. the city does not own the outside lands or any outside lands is owned by another planet entertainment. the festival has not sold out until the last two years. and that's sort of the industry standard, that it takes 3 to 5 years for these festivals to begin selling out. to begin building a
was in the service. i'm also the parent of a son murdered on the south side of the city of chicago. and i am a pastor of a church. i'm here to support h.r. 308, the large capacity ammunition feeding device act, which i have been a co-sponsor of since march of last year. there are 264,194 a.r.-15 rifles, manufactured each year in the u.s., and of those, 5,443 are exported overseas, and 248,751 are used right here in the u.s. and the very irony that we are confronted with at sandy hook is that the firearm industry's trade association, their headquarters are located just across the highway from the sandy hook elementary school, and while it is important, i also have a bill that i want to acknowledge, h.r. 6680, the firearm licensing and record of sale act of 2012, a legislation aimed at establishing a nationwide system for prohibiting unlicensed gun ownership and granting the u.s. attorney general broader authority over the program. as sad and inexplicable as the sandy hook incident is for all of us, we must be cognizant of the fact that gun violence has been terrorizing neighborhoods in chicago, detroi
